Datatag launch a new, thatcham, approved, security system for caravans and motor homes

9 November 2009

Datatag the market leader in security and registration has announced a new security system for caravans and motor homes. The new Datatag system is to be distributed exclusively by Knott-Avonride Limited in association with Miriad Products Ltd, both leading suppliers of caravan and trailer components and accessories. The Datatag electronic identification system is designed to act as both a deterrent against theft and as a powerful way to recover in the event of a theft. The system is designed to be installed by the owner of the caravan or motor home.

It is easy to install and yet effective. The Datatag system contains everything that is required and includes:

  • 2 types of electronic transponder, each with a unique embedded identification number
  • New liquid forensic DNA solution containing thousands of microscopic Datadots
  • 2 “tamper evident” chassis plates
  • High quality warning labels
  • Registration form

Installation of the Datatag security technologies gives the caravan or motor home a unique “fingerprint” that can be established, by the police or the insurance industry, in a number of different ways. The liquid DNA and Datadots can be applied to the caravan contents, TV’s or cookers for example. The unique identity is virtually impossible to remove, how ever hard a criminal may try.

All UK Police Forces have been equipped Free of Charge with thousands of special Datatag scanners that are specifically programmed to read the Datatag electronic transponders help the police to gain the upper hand and defeat criminals and their networks.

The main benefits for the police, compared to other tagging systems, is that with this new system they are already equipped with the scanners to conduct a roadside check and they can contact Datatag call centre at any time of day or night 365 days a year.

The police can establish the caravan or its contents true identity from the tamper evident registration number or the “electronic fingerprint” from the Datadot’s and forensic DNA even if the caravan has been modified or painted. All Datatag systems meet the “Secured by Design” standard, the Association of Chief Police Officers preferred specification for security marking.

Spokesperson for Towergate Bakers, Paul Havenhand says, “Datatag is an effective way to help protect your treasured possessions from being stolen.”
